Episode 55: How to Prepare Your Homeschooled Teen for College Socially/Emotionally

Overview: As homeschoolers our teens may not know how to prepare for college socially and emotionally, but you can guide them with these tips.

Knowing how to prepare for college academics may seem easy compared to whether your homeschooled teen will be ready socially and emotionally. I’ve sent four kids off to college and have learned a bit about what they will need to be ready for in the realms of relationships, expectations, etc. In this episode I share several character qualities that will help your teen succeed.

If you’re listening to this and your teen doesn’t seem to have these attributes yet, it’s not too late. Some of this they will learn ahead of time, and some of it they will learn on-the-job, so to speak. Sometimes they may end up learning the hard way! That’s OK; just be there to counsel them through it if they ask. Life lessons are always valuable!
